    I also have 6-7 pictures of the bombing, taken from a Japanese Recon. plane, before any bombs hit. My dad got them off of a Japanese soldier on Bougainville. People have told me to sell them as my children will throw them away. Also, the same Japanese soldier had the big sword and I have it also. Any advise?

    I second JW's request. It would be fascinating to see the pics. And what unit was your dad in? If you have a story to go along with his recovery of the pics on Bougainville I would be interested. There are a few of us here with relatives who fought on Bougainville and would be interested to hear about it.

    Oops! Just noticed one of your other posts that he was in the 3rd Marine Div. Still would like to hear the story, if you know it. :)
